BIST - Program BIST HOME 2

Commitment to Parents

Predictability, consistency, communication and parental support are essential components to a student's success in the classroom. We are committed to partnering with you and your child’s school to ensure everyone has the proper tools to deliver the same message and support to help your child make positive changes.

For example, your child might receive a piece of paper called a Think Sheet. A student fills out this tool to help him/her take ownership of a specific challenge and create a plan to be successful. If your child receives a Think Sheet, here are some tips:



  • Talk with your child about what happened.
  • Talk about their plan to keep from having this problem again.
  • Review the goal and/or replacement behavior your child is working on.
  • Practice what it will look like to be successful.
  • Call the teacher to discuss the plan to help your child.
  • Be angry with your child.
  • Punish him/her.
  • Take away items.
  • Feel guilty.

BIST provides free virtual parenting sessions twice during the school year. For information and/or registration, contact your child’s school or the BIST Office 816.508.3652.

If you ever have any questions about BIST tools or the BIST model, feel free to contact us at any time.
